Barnhart to be named IndyCar CEO?UPDATE This rumor is downgraded to 'false.' Speculation regarding Brian Barnhart's future within the IZOD IndyCar Series will not include leading the open-wheel organization from the top.
“Brian continues to be an executive member of INDYCAR and his understanding of our sport continues to provide our organization with valuable input," read a statement supplied by the series. "However, Brian’s future role with INDYCAR will not be as CEO of the organization.”
Barnhart will, however, play a greater role within INDYCAR's competition department.
02/12/13 Speculative rumors (and a tweet from John Oreovicz) say that Brian Barnhart will be named as the new IndyCar CEO soon.
